Marker bar

Marker Bar (also known as the 'Error Stripe') is a sidebar integrated into the editor scroll bar. The Status Bar can represent the following items as individual markers:

Markers have different colors representing kinds of corresponding items.

The position of a marker on the bar indicates the relative position of the corresponding item in the file. You can get pop-up tips for each item by placing the mouse pointer over markers, and you can navigate directly to relevant lines of code by clicking on them.

Status Indicator

Status Indicator — a small icon at the top of the Marker Bar — shows the status of the code inspection in the file. When you hover the mouse cursor over it, the indicator shows the total number of errors and warnings in the current file.

Meanings of status indicator icons

Status Indicator can have different icons with the following meanings:

ThemedIcon ErrorStripeError Screen Gray Whenever you see a red marker, it means that the file contains errors that would either prevent the project from compiling or lead to exceptions in runtime, unless Treat warnings as errors is enabled in project properties.
ThemedIcon ErrorStripeWarning Screen Gray A yellow marker means that there are some warnings, but no errors that would prevent the project from compiling.
ThemedIcon ErrorStripeOK Screen Gray A green marker means that your code doesn't contain errors or warnings, but there still can be code issues with minor severity levels (Suggestion or Hint).
ThemedIcon ErrorStripeOff Screen Gray The file is excluded from code inspection.
